NEW Folgers Flavors™ coffee enhancers Sampling!

No comments:

Is your coffee just too plain? What about your hot chocolate? You can now add some flavoring with Folgers Flavors. There are four different flavors: Hazlenut, Vanilla, Mocha, and Caramel.

My favorite one is the Caramel....I'm not personally big on coffee, but I sure did love the flavors in my hot chocolate. If you are not a fan of a coffee taste, these flavors will not be for you. I added one squeeze of caramel into my hot chocolate and it was just the right about of flavor me. While I was drinking my hot chocolate, I did get a hint of coffee taste. These are made to flavor coffee, but I enjoyed it in my hot chocolate. 


Have you tried the new Folgers Flavors coffee enhancers? What did you think of them?

Gemstone Dig Kit | Excavate 3 Real Gems!

No comments:
My 8 year old son loves dig kits. A few years ago, he had received two dig kits as Christmas gifts. One was for gems and the other was for dinosaur bones (after you found the bones, you were able to build the dinosaur).

When saw this Gemstone Dig Kit from Discover with Dr. Cool, I just knew he would love it. The ones that we had received years ago, were from a different company, and we were excited to try a different one.

My son was so excited when this package arrived. It arrived on a Thursday afternoon and he wanted to work on it right away, but he had homework to complete first. So, we agreed to work on it the next day after school. Friday, as soon as he got off of the bus he asked if he could start digging.

The first thing he noticed when he opened the box was that there was no hammer type tool. With the other kits he has done in the past, there was a hammer tool and stick to dig with. With this dig kit there is and excavation tool that looks like a shovel (his words). 

After getting everything out of the package he was ready to start digging, but first he wanted a picture with the gemstone.

Now it's time to start digging. He knew exactly what he needed to do. He used his digging tool and brush to start looking for his gemstones. He was very excited when he realized that the gems he found were bigger than the ones that he had found in the other digging kits that he had in the past. He loves rocks and he loves anything science related, so these digging kits are perfect for him.



The first gemstone is found was the Tiger's Eye. He loved reading all about it in the little booklet that came with the kit. Next, he found the amethyst and then the quartz crystal.

It took him about 1 hour and 15 minutes to get all three gemstones free. Below you can see a photo of the gemstones, in comparison to a quarter. He was so excited about them that he brought them to school on Monday to show to his class.

I would highly recommend the Discover With Dr. Cool kits to everyone. The kids will love it. He came with the gemstone shaped rock to dig, digging tools, activity booklet and a guide full of information. The gems that were found in the digging rock were bigger than the ones that had found in other dig kits.

Would you love to get one of these Gemstone Dig Kits for someone special. Well, it will be on sale for $7.50 for the first half of November (November 1st - November 16th). Otherwise, they sell for $11.99. You can make your purchases here.

Bee Sili SUPER Silicone BBQ Grill Oven Gloves & Basting Brush

No comments:

These gloves come in really handy. Just slide them on before handling hot dishes (up to 425 degrees), or use them for handling really cold things (like looking for a certain drink in a cooler full of ice. I was able to pull a hot pan of cookies out of the oven by using the Silicone BBQ Grill Oven Gloves

My husband and I can use the same pair of gloves, since it's one size small, medium and large hands. If you have extra large hands they might not work for you. I would recommend these to everyone. Cleaning them is so easy, just place them in the dishwasher.

You can choose from four different colors, green, black, red, or blue. I chose the green pair.

Bee SAFE, THRIFTY & & ECO FRIENDLY when you use SUPER Silicone FDA approved Bbq Grill & Oven Gloves & FREE Silicone Basting Brush * Let your imagination run wild * Have safe fun with family & friends * Remove baked foods from oven * Turn food over & remove from grill * Prepare pulled pork * Handle hot corn-on-the-cob & boiled egss * Roast marshmallow & hot dog over the camp fire * Tend the fireplace * Grab cold drinks & food from the ice chest or freezer * Open lids with ease * Toss in the dishwasher for bacteria free cleaning * One size fits small, medium & large hands but not extra large hands (6 inches wide) * Heat resistant up to 425 degrees F
These would make the perfect gift for someone who loves to grill, but also they would be great for just about anyone who cooks. You can grab a pair here for $17.95.
